I recently received the news that my friend and long-time fellow blogger, truth seeker and bullshit shiner Nolocontendere, author of the blog piglipstick.blogspot.com, has died. Mr. P died at his home on August 4th due to complications arising from pneumonia.
I met Mr. P through my husband and a friendship was thus begun. He came into my life when I was in full swing of questioning reality. He was a wealth of information, which he readily shared. And while his opinions were very strong, his emotions behind them a times almost fierce, he was at his core a peaceful, kind, tender-hearted soul. A big teddy bear, you could say. He knew planet earth could be a "paradise". And he dedicated the remaining years of his much-too-short life pointing out the factors of our world which kept paradise at bay.
Whether people realize it or not, a beacon of beautiful light has left our planet. And whether Mr. P realizes it or not, he had a big 'ole influence on our planet. He entertained and enlightened many a soul. And for that, I thank him. And will miss him for it.
RIP big dude. Keep on searchin'.
